Hope after Citizens United: Russ Feingold speaking in Eugene on Monday Nov 7 (tags)
Corporations, legal fictions, run your lives and your government thanks to the disastrous Citizens United Supreme Court decision. With Reagan, taxation shifted from corporate to individual. Russ Feingold will be speaking at EMU in Eugene at 4 PM on Nov7
Don't be fooled: Imperialism trys to hide the importance of Wikileaks docs. (tags)
"Again, the wikileaks documents are a godsend to those who want to create fainess and justice, and to help save planet earth for all of humanity. But in order to assure that they have this impact we must investigate, along with trusted independent media, the wikileaks materials and work hard to get the truths out to activate the masses to liberate themselves. Media owned and managed by these people for whom we need "Nuremberg like trials" will never do that job for us. "
Dump the Health Insurance Bill (tags)
With the death of the “public option,” the Medicare buy-in and everything else in the proposed health insurance “reform” bill that might actually serve the public good, the bill is now nothing more than a giant, $1 trillion-plus corporate welfare program for the health insurance and pharmaceutical industries. Its meager promises of reform in the way the health insurance industry does business — no total caps on coverage or exclusion of “pre-existing conditions” — are likely to be flouted in practice. The progressive community made a serious mistake by not staging their own protests and disrupting Congressional town-hall meetings to demand single-payer and other progressive reforms — and as a result it will be the Republican Party and the Right in general which will reap the benefit of the putrid piece of corporate welfare the Democrats are trying to palm off on the American people as “health reform.”
Employee Free Choice Act: (EFCA) Counting The Votes - Which Side Are YOU On Boys EFCA? (tags)
Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) The cloture vote (which requires 60 votes) and the vote on the final legislation (which requires 50 votes) are two completely separate things, and they should be treated separately
Pro-War Diane Feinstein, What Are The Alternatives? (tags)
Feinstein herself has directly profiteered from the U.S. imposed misery she voted for in Iraq. Her husband, Richard Blum, is a billionaire investor that together with CEO Ronald Tutor own investment companies that hold 75% of the voting stock in a company called Perini. On March 12, 2004 Perini was awarded a $500,000,000 contract for rebuilding the electrical infrastructure of southern Iraq. So Feinstein is profiting from the U.S. bombing of the Iraqi infrastructure as well as its inefficient rebuilding by private U.S. contractors.
SEC,Christopher Cox,Hillary Clinton and Barbara Boxer Aid CIA'S In-Q-Tel penny stock fraud (tags)
Before beginning any criticism of Barbara Boxer for anything whatsoever it would be unfair to not to praise her for her stance against the Bush Regime's Iraq war from the very beginning.Below is a list of the sad minority of Senators who had the courage or common sense not to place that decision in the hands of the mad man some call 'president', George W Bush.Of course the far right hypocrite Hillary Clinton is another story.She who cries of a 'far right conpiracy' against her and hubby Bill Clinton,is one.

Tell the Sentate: Get some Ovaries, Censure Bush! (tags)
Amazingly, over 15 Senate Democrats voted to censure Clinton for a blow job, but now can't muster the indignation to tell Bush he was wrong for boldly defying U.S. law and ILLEGALLY spying on Americans! Right now there are only three sponsors of Russ Feingold's bill to censure Bush and it is set to be introduced on the Senate floor this Friday. Tell the cowering Senators: "GET some OVARIES or we will GET YOU OUT!!"
Congress Under Assault (tags)
Bush is stealing power from Congress and the Courts using two bogus arguments.
the Mosque Massacre was no Accident (tags)
The U.S. has been asked by Iraqi officials to quit running security operations. If that’s not an open invitation to go home, I don’t know what is. So why aren’t US forces packing up? Because Bush doesn’t really want a stable Iraqi government run by Shi’ias.
A Message from the Chairman (tags)
Maybe not Howard himself, but fearful Democratic Party leaders are putting the screws to those in Congress who want to call Bush a criminal or to call for impeachment.

Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) speaks out for 9/11 truth! (tags)

With Biden announced, Clinton a near certainty, and maybe even Kerry wanting a second try at the White House, the 2007-8 Democratic primary season looks to be grim stuff, and the likelihood of continued Republican dominance good.

Intelligence Committee in Maneuver to Pass Even Worse PATRIOT Act (tags)
With no announcement, the Senate Intelligence Committee has scheduled a closed door session to approve a version of the Patriot Act that would be even worse than the present act being considered by the Judiciary Committee. The hand of the White House seems to be behind the sneaky maneuver.

SmartMob MoveMent in spirited Defense of genuine Representative Democracy. The Law, the Future, common sense and decency are ON Our Side and The PeopleUnited in exciting solidarity are ready to BRING IT ON!, to those who corrupt, disparage and mock our Right to free, fair and VALID Elections. Either- ticket or the media is not authorized to accept it on the people's behalf if it does not follow clean worldwide standards,a studied, honest legal assesment shows 2004 to be suspect, questionable frustratingly problematic in its planning, conduct and now-audit. Since the CorpMedia has almost zilch credibility as an objective news source it is the EveryDay People's duty to become and originate a New Medium which breathes life, rarified air into the communications sphere and DeCONtaminates the poisoned, polluted atmosphere of responsible public discourse. Conscientiously aimed at motivating, maturing and moving Consensus Reality Forward-closing the Wisdom Gap. Can't you see Boris, slyly grinnin',(the raw exit poll data withheld inside his overcoat) smacking his fist in his palm, threatening, "What part of, it's over, don't you understand?" With Abu Gharib, Gitmo ethos prevalent & lurking, the shameful media is acting much like an agressive interrogater, enforcer- foisting a fraudulent, sham election onto the MassPsyche, and to caring, FreeThinkers & justified Vote Defenders, akin to Psychological torture. First they tell us that it is the most important election in our lifetime, then Andrew Card nervously, unilaterally calls the election, in lieu of earned merit, for his boss. The media doesn't study it, analyize it, or do their job and in a concerted campaign, echo in unison-GET OVER IT. (remember Hussein capture? newspapers, websites, networks, punditz-LIKE A RAT,Like a Rat, like a rat) Who gives the orders for these negative thought-spores? THIS indocrination, chicanery, ridicule is obvious and THE ULTIMATE fear and hopeless-based trauma CONDITIONING TO MANUFACTURE ALIENATION and TIMID ACCEPTANCE FOR THE END OF DEMOCRACY. News org's spreading thought-viruses violate the BirthRight freedom- Cognitive Liberty and the sovereignity of individuals freedom to think independently, fairly, honestly as sentient agents SEEKING the promotion of The Good. Personally, I could give a hoot if the media doesn't care about their own credibility or respect Words=Conduits of Spirit, I know where to find solid information-but they are disturbing and stunting, brainwashing those who don't have time or strength to discover different solutions that shine light on hidden, nefarious motives, in effect selling short the Human Race, preventing wisdom, growth and Delaying the Rennaissance! Nevertheless, Intuition, word-of-mouth and heart-based gnosis IS very powerful and contagioUS and shall overcome, their adavantage of mass-produced reality bytes courtesy of Monopolies aggresively overwhelming dominance and destruction of sacred Nature- in all it's forms and favoring profit OVER people, machine OVER man, subterfuge OVER SunShine transparency- truly archaic modus-operandi for a successful species. This post shares recent tough essays, VoterGate2004 artifacts, documents and correspondence to emBOLDen and build your networks, flyers for historic rallies and Hands-to-Work-Hearts-to-God HOMEmade, protest=protect SIGNS* ENOUGH! No heavy-handed, top-down reality control can stop this beautiful calling-WE know what happened and we have to arREST this corruption-Democracy yearns to STAY UP past it's bedTIME!

Don't Certify the Votes: Go on record with your Senator This list of 10 Senators are those which I hope to focus lobbying efforts to try and find at least one to protest the certification of the final vote tally in congress. I've set-up the thread with a topic for each Senator, so we can keep track of any feedback from the Senators. I've started a Thread at the forum on DU Here: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=201&topic_id=6829#6839
